We have been asked: What is happening with the Dolls? When can we see them?
Our intention now is that the Dolls will be ready for display in the fall.
Here are some pictures of our volunteers playing with the Dolls....no, they are preparing the dolls to be photographed. Once that is completed, research will be done on each doll to determine the date it was made, what it is made of, and any interesting facts about that doll. If you like dolls and have some expertise in that area, please contact Nancy King to volunteer. We need help not only with the research, but also with ideas and props to use in the exhibit.
Researchers: you can help us at home by doing Internet research on this wicker doll buggy/carriage, a recent acquisition to our doll collection. It is about 20 " long and was made by the South Bend Toy Company. We want to ascertain its date, and anything else you can find out about it, perhaps even what it cost new?
